Stuckey, Adrienne; McKeown, Debra – Research in the Schools, 2019
Teaching classwide behavior expectations and using specific praise (SP) are considered light behavior-management strategies that teachers might find acceptable to implement because they require little time or materials (McNamara, 1984; Oswald, Safran, & Johanson, 2005). Their use also is beneficial to students with mild disabilities who might…

Patel, Nimisha H.; Franco, M. Suzanne; Daniel, Larry G. – Research in the Schools, 2019
The purpose of the present study was to examine differences in engagement and achievement among 2,695 high students enrolled in (a) a STEM school, (b) a traditional school (no STEM program available), (c) a STEM program within a school, or (d) a traditional program within a school having the STEM program option. The High School Survey of Student…

Carbonneau, Kira J.; Marley, Scott C.; Selig, James P.; Ward, Krystal; Korzekwa, Amy – Research in the Schools, 2019
The benefits of studying topics accompanied by adjunct displays are well established in the literature; however, less is understood about the durability of these learning benefits. Therefore, in the current study, we investigate the cognitive benefits of causal diagrams over time. Undergraduate participants (N = 194) recruited from teacher…

Mokher, Christine G.; Lee, Steve; Sun, Christopher – Research in the Schools, 2019
We explore the impacts of a Consortium of rural high schools and colleges in Tennessee engaged in partnership activities to improve high school students' college and career readiness. These 29 Consortium schools received support from the federal Investing in Innovation Fund (i3) to scale up local promising practices, including distance and online…

McConn, Matthew L. – Research in the Schools, 2019
Research shows that pre-service teachers face traditional approaches to teaching literature in their student teaching placements that contrast with the progressive strategies covered in their graduate education programs. This article describes 4 teacher candidates' (TCs') contrasting assumptions about the teaching of literature in secondary…

Onwuegbuzie, Anthony J.; Hwang, Eunjin – Research in the Schools, 2019
Much has been written about the importance of "writing with discipline" in order to increase the readability and, hence, the publishability of manuscripts submitted to journals for consideration for publication. More specifically, empirical evidence has been provided that links American Psychological Association (APA) errors, citation…

van Velzen, Joke H. – Research in the Schools, 2019
Research on teaching effectiveness, especially those concerning teaching approaches and instructional strategies, rarely shows conclusively the effectiveness of an intervention. Then, these (quasi-) experimental studies on teaching effectiveness often involve distal measures of teaching components. In this article, the focus is on another likely…

Hanauer, Matthew; Yel, Nedim – Research in the Schools, 2018
Bayesian analysts use informed priors to improve analytic precision and prediction; however, rarely have they applied a mixed methods approach that uses qualitative data to develop these priors. Yet, using qualitatively informed priors can be useful when making predictions in the context of small sample sizes, which is common in school-based…

Anderson, Jeffrey Alvin – Research in the Schools, 2018
David Berliner argued in 2002 that educational research is the hardest science of all. His arguments addressed the complexity that context plays in educational settings and the difficulties of applying research designs that were largely developed and refined in the natural sciences arena to fields of human behavior. In this article, it is argued…

Newman, Isadore; Houchins, David E. – Research in the Schools, 2018
Special education researchers have indicated the need for an increased use of mixed methods research to address many of the complex issues in the field. An important first step in designing mixed methods research is to develop quality research questions. The aim of this article is to provide fundamental information on the formation of mixed…

Onwuegbuzie, Anthony J.; Corrigan, Julie A. – Research in the Schools, 2018
Conducting mixed methods research studies has the potential to help researchers who represent special education to address relatively complex questions compared to monomethod research studies. Therefore, it is important to determine the prevalence of mixed methods research studies in special education, especially because the prevalence rate…

Schoonenboom, Judith; Hitchcock, John H.; Johnson, R. Burke – Research in the Schools, 2018
This article is predicated on the idea that, by interacting with differences of various kinds, researchers in special education can obtain conclusions that are more nuanced, sophisticated, richer, and, hence, better than when they would have ignored such differences. Based on the application of existing research guidelines to 6 recent exemplars of…

Hitchcock, John H.; Johnson, R. Burke; Schoonenboom, Judith – Research in the Schools, 2018
The central purpose of this article is to provide an overview of the many ways in which special educators can generate and think about causal inference to inform policy and practice. Consideration of causality across different lenses can be carried out by engaging in multiple method and mixed methods ways of thinking about inference. This article…

Christ, Thomas W. – Research in the Schools, 2018
Action research pairs nicely with mixed methods at methodological and paradigmatic levels. As a form of mixed methods, action research can be used to address a number of questions in special education. Action research can help special educators causally understand whether changes improve something about their practice and/or the condition of their…

Almarode, John T.; Subotnik, Rena F.; Steenbergen-Hu, Saiying; Lee, Geesoo Maie – Research in the Schools, 2018
The purpose of this study was to investigate links among experiences commonly associated with strategies and experiences of surface versus deep learning in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses, STEM school graduates' (n = 3,526) reported level of college readiness, and eventual completion of university degrees in a STEM…
